But I am not.
I called my doc Monday to give him a progress report. He has requested that I get a lumbar x-ray. They called and scheduled one for Tuesday, which is actually later this morning. I really hope that this will give some answers to my discomfort. I cannot take much more of this.
It's emotionally taking a toll on me.
It's even harder because Superdad doesn't agree with my course of action. But, I'm doing the best I can and I just want to be back to myself again and be pain free.
If that requires physical therapy then I will do it. If I have to see a chiropractor then I will do it. If that requires me to have pain medication to help me be comfortable then I will do it.
That's just how I feel.
Earlier in the day I did a big no no. After taking my muscle relaxer and pain pill I thought I would enjoy a nice cold beer. That was a big mistake. I got extra tipsy. I never thought that one beer would do that. It was very nice because for the first time in days I felt ZERO pain then I felt embarrassed that Superdad had to help put me to bed.
So, now I know to take those warning labels serious that say, "Don't drink alcohol while taking this medication because it may make you more sleepy." Now I know.
I think I agreed to buzzing my hair while in a drunken stupor. I was texting Monica and she was telling me how she was covering her bald head up and it made me sad for my friend. I would totally buzz my hair off for her. She may take me up on it and that'll be just fine with me. I love my Monica and if being buzzed with her makes her feel a bit better then I'm all over this idea. If we do this, I will be sure to post pictures. After that we will be getting matching "Best Friend" tattoos. (grin)
I'm sitting on the couch with all my pillows, on that awesome laptop, watching my usual late night TV. Cheers. This show always cracks me up!!! Maybe I have a Ted Danson obsessions that I need to acknowledge?? Who knows.
I'm trying to relax and breath through the pain as I find my power animal.
So, I guess I will just veg on the couch all day again.
I wanted to share something nice about me. My friend Monica had brain surgery and they shaved part of her hair off.
She went ahead and had the rest shaved off so it would all grow back the same. I offered to shave my hair for her. I told her I always wanted to look like Sinead anyway. She told me I didn't have to do that. Superdad is very glad she didn't take me up on my offer. I really wanted to buzz my hair though. It would have been cool to share that experience with my friend.
Would you shave your hair off for your friend?
Right now they just like to tease each other to make the other one squeal. Lovely huh??
I take my meds, fix milk for them and change M's diaper. I tell them about a hundred times to stop playing in the fridge and SHUT THE DOOR. I could do this routine with my eyes closed.
After herding them into the living room I turn on the electronic baby sitter so they can bicker more about what to watch and what not to watch. Usually I go turn on the computer and sit in an uncomfortable chair to check all my Supermom stuff.
I sat on the couch. Got comfy with like five pillows. I even have my feet propped up. I reached over and turned on the snazzy laptop that Bryan Freeborn brought over to the house yesterday. Pretty cool huh????
I'm still in shock at the generosity of others. I blog about needing a laptop to make my life easier. Yes, I could have bought a laptop but with four kids I just couldn't spend that money for a new gadget. I could use it for food, school and more food. I contacted three computer companies, Dell HP and Apple, about them sponsoring my blog. Two never responded and one basically sent an email that they would sell me a refurnished laptop. Which would be spending money that I don't have at the moment for an electronic gadget.
Then Bryan emails me on Facebook. I'm high on meds and crying at his offer to give me a laptop.
I was so touched. Yesterday, he came over to my house. This was the first time we've met in person I add. I'm not even dressed in clothes. I mean I'm dressed but in clean pajama's. That's the most I could do. We sit on my couch and he shows me the basics on the laptop then he left me to play with my new toy.
This just shows how blessed I am. I have loving and caring friends that would do anything to help me in my time of need. Thank you.
Okay, my medication have kicked in and I'm getting all sappy so I'm going to publish this post and rest. Doctor's Orders.
"Holy cow, can you people not do anything without me holding your hand?"
Just pretend I'm not hogging the couch and make some decisions on your own. It's easy, I promise.
Please, just give it a try.
To make my life easier Bryan Freeborn graciously donated a laptop to The Adventures of Supermom. Wasn't that awesome!?!?!?!?!!?!?!? So go check out Bryan Freeborn and AVL Marketing.
I 'm go grateful for the amazing generosity of the people in my town. Thank you Bryan.
I'm trying my first ever blog post on the laptop right now. Sitting on my couch with my feet propped up, the babies fighting and on some good medication.
What more could I ask for? Oh, I know. So peanut M & M's.
I cannot help it. I thought I would go for something different! I like the new look even if the lady laying across the top doesn't look like me. I love the hot pink and the notebook paper look!!!!
Today, I blogged, Facebooked and Twittered about needing a laptop. I was so touched because I had two people offer me laptops. One locally and one not so much.
So, tomorrow hunky in a speedo is bringing the laptop by. I just cannot express my gratitude in words at this time. It will be so nice being able to blog from the couch or from my bed instead of typing on my tiny Blackberry.
Things have a way of working out if you let them.
Don't get me wrong. I love having small boobs! I've terribly missed my A cups. Being all carefree and not having to wear a bra.
It's just now.......
I never thought I'd miss my huge knockers!!!
WOW!! Times have changed.
I know that I could form a great partnership with a company willing to work with me.
Can you believe that neither of them (HP or Apple) had the courtesy to reply to my emails. I find that rude. I took the time to shamelessly beg for a laptop and they could have taken a minute to email me back.
So, if you want to hook this Supermom up with a laptop I will add you as a sponsor and blog about your generosity all the time.
Sounds like a win win situation to me.
PS. That laptop would have come in handy for Blogapalooza and now since I've hurt my back.I'm just sayin'...
This morning after not being about to take it anymore I asked him,
"What in the world are you listening to?".
I blame my bluntness on my back pain.
Of course I had no idea who the band was when he told me. Soon I discovered it was a Christian rock band.
Being Christian doesn't make it sound any better.

This morning the pain was so bad I wanted to throw up. It was awful.
I called my doc and went to see him this morning.
I'm to rest for 3 days. He told me to get some help with the kids. I came home with assorted medications.
I've been moaning and groaning all day/afternoon/night.
I'm a lousy patient.

I'm crying. I'm excited. I'm anxious. I'm sad. I'm so flipping happy I cannot stand it!!!!!!
My best friend MJ just had her first baby!!!!! I'm so happy for her!!!!!! Crying tears of joy! Yet, I'm sad that I am not able to be there since she is around the DC area.
Then there's my other best friend Monica who is in Charlotte recovering from brain surgery yesterday. She has hydrocephalus and had to have a anti siphoning device put in because she has been bed ridden since May because her shunt has been working TOO well. I'm anxious for my friend because I know she is in pain. I'm sad that I am unable to be there for her.
Then my new friend S-L is upset because of some things going on in her life. I can offer advice and give encouragement because that is what friends do for each other.
After calming down from waking the whole house to tell about MJ having her baby, I was in the kitchen fixing my coffee. Crying. Then this thought came to mind,
"This is what LIFE is all about."
We share in joys, we cry with our friends and we worry about everything in between. We form friendships that only last a short time and we make friends that last a lifetime.
We need to only live in the now. Think about only today. Live it to the fullest. Make it count. Because this is our life, and we may not have tomorrow.
Love with your whole heart. Live a life full of passion. Laugh at the little things. Cry because you are happy, it feels good. Stop worrying about tomorrow, because it may never come.
My thoughts instantly go to H and Evan. (The guy who died in the car accident.) They were so happy. New love blooming. Excited about what tomorrow was going to bring. Then the tragic accident happened. That love never given a chance. It was over in an instant.
It just shows that I am on the right track. Live today!!!!!
Is learning to enjoy more, love completely, laugh and just be.
The phone is ringing
There's an animal in trouble
There's an animal in twouble
There's an animal in trouble somwhere
Do you realize how annoying this is???? (gentle smile)
